I love a good compilation for two reasons - they are a great way of discovering new music … and as I like to listen to a variety of music, a well curated compilation with a number of contributors gives me the variety I seek.
This time last year I never dreamed I would have my own netlabel … and I certainly never dreamed I would be putting out my first compilation on said netlabel … a compilation that showcases wonderful independent talent.
Some of the artists featured on this compilation have released music on weareallghosts and I am indebted to them for their generosity in working with me.
Others have been included because they are simply favourites of mine and I wanted to use this opportunity to showcase their talent too. This compilation is more than just a celebration of the musicians on my netlabel … it is a celebration of truly excellent music within the ambient and electronic genres.
I hope, through this compilation, that you will be introduced to the work of artists you previously hadn't heard of … and through this introduction you go off and find their work. Independent music needs all the help it can get and I am proud to do my bit.
I love music. I especially love the music featured on this compilation and my hope is … at the end of 2012 … that you will love it as much as I do.
My thanks go to everyone who has, in some way, made weareallghosts what it is today. Here's to 2013.
PS... a lossless version is available on Bandcamp for free.
